“An exceptional volatility of cryptocurrency” for 2018 has no impact on the overall development of the industry. This was stated by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, reports RIA Novosti.

According to him, digital assets are still of interest to Russia.

“In recent years the cost of some of the cryptocurrency fell five times. But it’s certainly not a reason to bury them”, — said Medvedev.

The Prime Minister added that cryptocurrencies are “bright and dark sides” like any other economic institution.

Earlier, the Chairman of the Duma Committee on financial market Anatoly Aksakov said that the appearance of cryptorama in Russia may take up to three years.
